Intermittently, I've been having issues while printing. If it does happen, it's when I'm changing the print window from within the drop-down print menu. The original print window is highlighted, but the cursor will not allow me to select the new coordinates points and it's necessary to force quit the program. After restarting, I'm able to change the print window, often repeatedly, until it mysteriously decides to freeze up again. Does anyone have a suggestion? Thanks.
The freeze does seem forever. The beachball does not appear, but the autcad window darkens (I believe, but not 100% sure of that) and is totally unresponsive even the "esc" key.
It only happens when I try to change the print window from the drop-down print menu, but not always.
What specifically are you suggesting I try resetting in the Applications Options?
My suggestion is to remove the printer. Then save to PDF. Then add the printer back in. You need to use the PDF viewer. I have seen some printer driver conflicts with AutoCAD.
Sorry that I've been away for a while on this topic. The freeze happens while trying to redefine the print window or area from the drop-down print menu. I need to redefine the print window because I frequently have several design schemes in a model space and would like to print them out without using the Page Setup Manager each time. So the the freeze happens even before the option to save to PDF. Again, the freeze does not always happen.
The freeze sometimes happens when I click on the button to the right of the "What to Print - Window" button and below the "Edit Page Setup..." button.
Correct, it does not always happen within even the same DWG file. At times, I can print several different windows without issue and then suddenly it will freeze. The print dialogue box does close and the cross hairs might still be off the screen, but certainly unresponsive. The cursor is available off the AutoCad window but nothing over the AutoCad window. Attached is a screen shot of the freeze.
Here's a shot of the full screen after it freezes. It does have a tendency to freeze when there is already a print in the cue, but other times it will freeze if no others are still in the cue.
